Australia purchase assistance needed on 09/20/2010 13:26:51 MDT Print View

Calling all Aussies! Well, only one, really.

I want to buy something online, but it's only available to those in Australia (some in UK, but mostly just Australia). I'm happy to pay all costs up front, and, of course, to pay shipping to you then to me.

Anyone care to assist?

Thanks in advance.

"Mail order Bride, eh?"

How they fit 'em in the boxes is beyond me! I guess that's why you've got to go with overnight shipping.....

You may want to contact Franco to help you out. With the mailing, not the Mail Order Bride. I think.

Douglas,

With all the help I've had from other members here, I'd be more than happy to have the chance to help someone else. (Plus I'm a little intrigued as to what is available here but not there.)

Happy to help too. I am in Adelaide, about the only good thing I can think of we have here for export is red wine!

Thanks everyone! It seems I was mistaken. Australia only simply meant that I had to order from Australia, not that I had to be in Australia! I've ordered my stuff, can't wait to see what it costs! (Payment details were in Australian dollars!).

Thanks again for the offer of assistance!

sorry to say though that the australian dollar is nearing parity to the $US so wont be much of a winfall from your direction

Australia is blessed with one of the funniest, most talented, irreverent (to put it mildly) singer/songwriter/comedian/actors ever. I just bought a few Tim Minchin DVDs and CDs!

But, uhhhhhh, I do like Australian wines as well....

We're still working on buying Canada. Australia will have to wait until we're done with Afghanistan, clean up the Gulf of Mexico, and learn to sing "Waltzing Matilda." Wait your turn, Mate! ;)

That is really funny. At least to me.

Doug,

Once you complete your purchase of Oz, would you be willing to sell me a wallaby?

I believe we sold the Sydney Harbour Bridge to many GIs during WW II. So we will be quite happy to sell you quite a few things ... ;-)

Cheers
